Apollo 16 Moon Panorama

Explanation: Fifty years ago, April 20, 1972, Apollo 16’s lunar module Orion touched down on the Moon’s near side in the south-central Descartes Highlands. While astronaut Ken Mattingly orbited overhead in Casper the friendly command and service module the Orion brought John Young and Charles Duke to the lunar surface. The pair would spend nearly three days on the Moon. Constructed from images (AS16-117-18814 to AS16-117-18820) taken near the end of their third and final surface excursion this panoramic view puts the lunar module in the distance toward the left. Their electric lunar roving vehicle in the foreground, Duke is operating the camera while Young aims the high gain communications antenna skyward, toward planet Earth.

说明: 五十年前的1972年4月20日,阿波罗16号的猎户座号登月舱着落在月球正面.笛卡尔高地的中南部。而当卡斯珀号指挥及服务舱载着太空人马丁利飞行在月表上空之时,杨格和杜克则搭乘猎户座号着陆在月球表面。这两人在月表上度过将近3天。这幅全景图建构自第三次也是最后一次月表漫游结束时所拍摄的照片((AS16-117-18814至AS16-117-18820),其中登月舱位在左侧远处。 在这幅以电动月面车为前景的影像里,杜克正在操作相机,而杨格则将高增益通讯天线指向天空中的地球。
